I had the worse transgression yesterday. I had a sausage, egg and bacon wrap and also KFC for dinner. I guess that was why I put on weight today…actually, I expected it to be worse. I also woke up in the middle of the night, covered in hives. I’ve also had about 4 anti-histamines today and I’m still unbearably itchy.

I was mostly pretty good today and today’s food were delicious. I tweaked the lunch and dinner recipes but the food I ate today, would be food that I’d usually eat.

Breakfast was scrambled eggs with asparagus and tomatoes. The eggs were made with 1 egg and 1 egg white, so it was nice and soft and pretty yummy. Perhaps I’ve lost my taste for butter?? I hardly doubt it.

Lunch was a Thai prawn salad. I tweaked the dressing by adding about 2 teaspoons of fish sauce with the lime juice. I also added 1 small teaspoon of caster sugar. The salad was made with brown rice and it was reminiscent of a Laab with the slightly crunchy rice. It was so yum, it was a good balance of sweet, sour and salty.

Dinner steak was pretty good too, I just used pumpkin instead of kumara and when I was roasting it, I sprinkled cinnamon and ground nutmeg on top, which gave it a nice flavour and it was velvety and cream. .

I’ve been fairly good today, but I did hoe into some butterscotch sauce I’d made the other day for a sticky date puddin (that I didn’t eat) but I hope I have lost the weight I gained tomorrow!!
